First class is fading fast. Here's why that's bad news for economy travelers, too 

 

First class isn't what it used to be, at least according to frequent airline passengers like Bonnie Friedman. She's been flying in the front of the plane for years and has witnessed the slow and sad decline of premium service.

"It was never fabulous," says Friedman, a communication consultant who lives on Maui. "But in the last three or four years, it has most definitely lost what little luster it had. The planes are cheaply made, the seats are smaller, the bathrooms almost too small to get into — and I’m a small person."

In first class. Yes, first class.

Friedman, like a lot of other air travelers, has noticed a marked decline in premium service. Seats have shrunk. Leg rests vanished. The food is barely edible, and the service is unacceptable.

And let's be clear about what we mean by first class: We're talking about domestic flights and generally excluding the competitive transcontinental flights, where airlines still make a half-hearted attempt to put the "first" into first class.

Is nature over? Maybe 

 

I know you care. You want your children to live in a world that supports wild elephants, giraffes, rhinos, bees, pangolins ... and, of course, human life, too.

I also trust that you've heard some of the warnings -- that Earth likely is moving into the sixth mass extinction event in its history, the first one that humans are causing. Elephants could be gone from the wild in a generation. Amphibian populations already are collapsing. Climate change is warming and acidifying the oceans, threatening to annihilate coral reefs.

Perhaps you've read the very latest from a UN-affiliated group, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, or IPBES, which released on Monday a sweeping and damning report on global biodiversity. None of the themes in the report are new -- we've long known we're screwing up the natural world, which also is the human world -- but the report's findings remain alarming and profound. Especially these three figures:

• Three-quarters of the land: 75% of the planet's land surface has been "significantly altered." Three. Quarters. Relatedly, biodiversity "is declining faster than at any time in human history."

What Is The Porn Block & How Will It Affect You? There Are Some Big Changes Coming 

 

In a bid to stop under-18s accessing pornographic websites, the government has announced that from July 15 age-checks will be introduced to commercial porn websites in the UK. The move has been dubbed the "porn block" and will require all sex websites that make money and run as businesses to introduce “robust” age verification procedures or risk facing a fine of up to £250,000 and being blocked by internet service providers. However, critics of the policy have said that teens will simply access porn in other ways, the loopholes are too large, and the changes may make little differences to big pornography platforms while putting smaller sex bloggers out of business.

While the porn block has come as a bit of a surprise for some it has actually been in the works for a long time, as the BBC reports. During the 2015 election the Conservative party pledged to introduce age-verification for online pornography if it won the election. It was also included in the Digital Economy Act 2017 and while it was supposed to be implemented in 2018 it has faced numerous delays.

The company that owns YouPorn and PornHub has developed the technology AgeID that will be used by those companies to verify the ages of its users. James Clark, Director of Communications at AgeID, told i-News, “first, a user can register an AgeID account using an email address and password, both of which are protected..." He continued:

“The user verifies their email address and then chooses an age verification option from our list of 3rd party providers, using options such as Mobile SMS, Credit Card, Passport, or Driving Licence.”

Bananas could go extinct due to a deadly fungus 
 

A deadly fungus is spreading from Southeast Asia and wiping out whole plantations of America's favorite fruit: the banana. The tropical fruit's popularity is thanks to a few pioneering entrepreneurs, who founded Chiquita under a different name over a century ago. Now, the business they built is at risk of decimation if the fungus reaches Latin America...

CATS SHOULD BE KILLED TO SAVE EARTH'S MOST ENDANGERED SPECIES FROM EXTINCTION, SCIENTISTS SAY 

 

Animals such as feral cats and dogs should be culled from islands around the world to save their prey from extinction, according to conservationists.

Eradicating creatures like rats, mongooses, pigs, and goats from 169 islands could save some 9.4 percent of the planet’s most-threatened animals, argue the authors of a study published in the journal PLOS One.

The world’s 465,000 islands only take up around 5.3 percent of land on Earth, yet they are home to 75 percent of known extinctions of bird, mammal, amphibian and reptile extinctions since 1500, the authors highlighted. Now, 36 percent of the world’s critically endangered species live on these pieces of land.

To arrive at their conclusion, the researchers looked at data on 1,184 highly threatened native vertebrates, as identified as critically endangered or endangered on the IUCN Red List, and 184 non-native mammals that live on 1,279 islands across the world.

Using this data, they created a list of 292 islands whose native animals would benefit from culling invasive mammals. Of these islands, the researchers highlighted 107 across 34 countries where eradication could start as soon as 2020.
